Roman Shades are great for adding a dash of color to your living space and an ideal option if you’re wanting to block out light. However, they add a lot of weight to a room and Sheer Roman Shades could be seen as a lighter alternative. 

 

Allowing light to filter in and making your room feel open and airy, sheers can set the mood of a room. Depending on the color and density of your shades, sheers can diffuse light beautifully and add a glow to a room whilst dense sheers help to reduce glare. 

 

This option is perfect for someone wanting a lightweight approach to Roman Shades without losing any of the elegance.

We would love to hear your design and technichal questions   Ask Tom  
   
Q:   Can the shades in the photo above be made without horizontal lines?  
    Asked on 3/10/2020 by Angela from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   First the answer is Yes,

The Roman shades in the photo are made with horizontal seems. This style is also called "Constructed Roman Shade". The seems (and sometimes made with bars) keep the fabric straight and fold neatly all the time.

For a more relaxed and loose style we an make these roman to be "Unreconstructed". In this case the fabric is sewn to rings at the back of the shade that holds the fabric and make the folds.

When closed this shade will look like a flat fabric with folds at the bottom only or sometimes without.

Q:   Are these shades cutting the heat too?  
    Asked on 8/21/2020 by Stephen from Manhattan  
 
       
A:   Depending on the fabric opacity some sheer fabrics will cut more light and heat and some less. However SheerWeave fabrics (that are mainly used for solar shades) will do a much better job.

We can make roman shades using SheerWeave fabrics (called Solar Roman Shades)

Those can cut the heat by letting only 10%, 5% or 3% of the light come into the room.

Here is a photo of Solar Roman Shades in 1% installed in 300 E 23rd Street:
